Just rewatched it. It doesn't look all that impactful but it definitely was. Still seen much worse bumps so this one didn't come across that bad despite the fact that it shortened his career by 4 years.

The Swagger hate seems to stem from the fact that a few months ago he wasn't anything like this and people who may have disliked him in the past don't want to think that someone can improve. I wasn't Swaggers biggest fan but you know what? I sat and watched what this new gimmick could have in store, a week later and we have Dutch Mantell spitting shit on the mic that gets me hooked.

No doubt in a few weeks/months time if Mantell is still alongside Swagger he will be getting the IWC dick, it's a given. I do however think they have pushed him a little too fast, but hey we come back to what I was saying earlier at how the WWE don't really know how to slow build any more.

HE HAS A LISP SO HE CAN'T BE A MAIN EVENTER.

What's weird is that I NEVER noticed he had a lisp until it was pointed out to me by about 8564543 morons who just hate on Swagger because they expected somebody else. People are clamoring for new stars to be made but bitch about it when it's not THEIR GUY. If they're going to make a star then why not go out and make the guy who was already a world champion a star, thus making a star and covering up your bad booking at the same time ?

WWE Elimination Chamber 2013 Review

Alberto Del Rio vs. Big Show (World Heavyweight Championship)
I’m shocked that this match didn’t receive some sort of a gimmick, especially since it was the big blow-off to their feud and they had two Last Man Standing matches before this match. The story of the match was that Alberto Del Rio was, despite his best efforts, unable to put Big Show away, either by pin fall or submission. Big Show had escaped from the arm bar twice and kicked out of every move Del Rio had to offer. There were some nice spots in this match as well, such as Del Rio’s hurricanrana (sp?) onto Big Show and his suicide dive to the outside of the ring, which he hit perfectly. Del Rio’s botch towards the end of the match hurt the match, sadly. It made both men look like complete GEEKS; with Del Rio looking geeky because he botched the move and Big Show looked geeky because he was completely oblivious to Del Rio’s attempted move behind him and just kept yelling at Ricardo. Thankfully, Del Rio improvised and added a few moves to the finish so we weren’t left with the botched enziguri being the final real move of the match before the arm bar. Outside of that botch, this match was just fine.
Rating: **3/4

Antonio Cesaro vs. Miz (United States Championship)
The left shoulder of Miz was wrapped up going into the match and because of that, it was a target for Cesaro. Miz went on the attack of Cesaro early, but Cesaro got on the advantage and did some great work on Miz’s shoulder, including breaking out the shoulder breaker, which is a move I haven’t seen in a while. Miz would even the playing field by injuring one of Cesaro’s legs by shoving him knee first into the steel steps on the outside of the ring. Miz would then proceed to work on the injured leg of Cesaro and appeared to be setting up for the Figure 4 Leg Lock but Cesaro would take the legs out from under Miz, which caused Miz’s knee to low blow Cesaro. After some lobbying by Cesaro, the referee decided to disqualify Miz because of the accidental low blow. I might me in the minority on this, but I highly enjoyed this match. This might have been one of Miz’s best non-gimmick singles matches when you factor in the great limb work by both men and the creative finish. If they have another match like this, I’m looking forward to their blow-off match.
Rating: ***

Jack Swagger vs. Chris Jericho vs. Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Kane vs. Mark Henry (Smackdown Elimination Chamber Match)
I get a kick out of Jack Swagger’s new gimmick and Zeb Coulter is just awesome. It might have a short shelf life unless he and Zeb focus on more “issues” so to speak outside of immigration. It will probably get some mainstream attention since they brought a Tea Party flag with them on Raw and their gimmick is basically them playing the stereotypical Tea Party member. The gimmick will probably rustle the jimmies of a few Tea Party members since the gimmick isn’t a good representation of the actual Tea Party but I highly enjoy it.

Anyway, Chris Jericho and Daniel Bryan kicked off the match and did some basic action before Jack Swagger came in. The match was mostly basic stuff outside of a few entertaining spots, such as Kane and Daniel Bryan’s comical showdown, which would eventually lead to the tag team champions going at it for a couple of minutes. The match picked up once MARK HENRY came in and started splitting wigs. Henry was a complete beast in this match; so much so that once he was eliminated, the crowd gave him a standing ovation. It’s a damn shame that they didn’t give Henry the win in this match since Del Rio vs. HENRY at Wrestlemania would have been fantastic.

The final minutes to this match were pretty great, with Jericho, Orton, and Swagger doing everything they could to eliminate each other and win the match. In the end, the REAL AMERICAN stood tall after rolling up Orton for the pin, just seconds after Orton eliminated Jericho with the RKO. What really brought this match down was the first ten minutes or so, which was mostly just basic action and the match really took off once Henry made his entrance. With that said, this was still a very entertaining match that went nearly thirty minutes. Was this one of the best Elimination Chamber matches of all time? No. Was this match entertaining and worth a watch? It absolutely is.
Rating: ***1/2

The SHIELD vs. John Cena, Sheamus, and Ryback
These two teams wasted no time in getting down to business, as they brawled on the outside of the ring as soon as SHIELD entered the ringside area. Cena and Friends proved to be too much to handle, as they easily won the first skirmish of the match, which culminated in the ring when Cena, Sheamus, and Ryback delivered three suplexes to all three members of the SHIELD.

A couple of minutes later, John Cena would play the face in peril, falling victim to the SHIELD and despite his best efforts, every comeback Cena attempted was thwarted every time. Some might not have enjoyed such a long FIP segment, but I enjoyed it. Each member of the SHIELD got in a good amount of offense in on John Cena and the counters to Cena’s comebacks were all well done. Cena would eventually dump Dean Ambrose to the outside of the ring, which would allow him to finally make the hot tag to Ryback, who had not entered the match before the tag. Ryback came in and cleaned house and soon afterwards the match broke down. Sheamus was taken out of the match after Roman Reigns speared him through the barricade, which almost killed Lillian Garcia. Ryback was attempting to deliver Shell Shock onto Seth Rollins, but Reigns came back into the ring and speared Ryback, which caused Rollins to fall on top of Ryback for the pin. This match was just fantastic. In between the opening entertaining brawl, Cena’s entertaining FIP segment, and the closing moments, this is my MOTY so far.
Rating: ****

Dolph Ziggler vs. Kofi Kingston
I have nothing really to say about this match outside of the fact that it had a few cool spots. This was a fine sub-five minute match that served as a buffer so the crowd could cool down after two very good matches.
Rating: *3/4

Kaitlyn vs. Tamina Snuka (Divas Championship)
I’m awarding ¼* for Kaitlyn taking a hard bump into the ring post and then proceeding to fall outside of the ring.
Rating: ¼*

The Rock vs. CM Punk (WWE Championship)
CM Punk started out out-wrestling Dwayne and arrogantly playing to the crowd. Punk would knockdown Dwayne with a shoulder block and would jog around the ring afterwards as Paul Heyman yelled “Two points for you…It’s 2 to nothing!” Dwayne would come back with a couple of arm-drags of his own, which sent Punk to the outside of the ring to catch his breath. When he went back into the ring, he and Dwayne had a faceoff in the middle of the ring, where he proceeded to slap Dwayne. This pissed Dwayne off and he started hammering Punk in the corner with punches. The referee made Dwayne back off, but Punk sat in the corner and egged Dwayne on in an attempt to get him disqualified and in turn, lose the title. Some great psychology on display right there by Punk. We’re about four minutes into the match now and it’s so far, so good!

Punk would get up and they would have another stare down in the center of the ring and this time, Punk would spit in the face of Dwayne. Dwayne would knock Punk down and they started to brawl on the outside of the ring but luckily for Dwayne, he wasn’t disqualified. Punk would soon afterwards get on the advantage and his control segment didn’t set the world on fire at all. The match finally picked up when Dwayne made his comeback and the crowd came alive. I thoroughly enjoyed the final six or so minutes to this match, which consisted of Punk kicking out of both the Rock bottom and the People’s Elbow and Punk delivering his own version of the Rock bottom to Dwayne onto the Spanish announce table (which didn’t break).

Referee Mike Choida was knocked out when Dwayne ran into him. Dwayne would walk right into a GTS but no referee was present when Punk went for the pin. A referee would finally run down to ringside, but it was to check on his concerned colleague and not to take Choida’s place. The second referee would finally enter the ring, but it was after Dwayne hit the People’s Elbow onto Punk and the second referee counted the pin, only for Punk to kick out at two. This referee would be taken out as well after Punk rolled onto his ankle, which apparently caused it to sprain. The finish came when Punk tried to hit Dwayne with the WWE Championship, but Dwayne would move and Punk would hit Heyman instead. Dwayne would proceed to hit Punk with the second Rock bottom and Mike Choida crawled into the ring to count the three.

I enjoyed this MUCH more than their previous encounter at the Royal Rumble the month before. I felt that the vast majority of Punk/Rock I was boring, while the only real boring part of this match was Punk’s control segment. This match was also devoid of any real screwy finish (such as the restart of their match at the Royal Rumble) unless you count the ref bump. This was probably Dwayne’s best match since his match against Steve Austin at Wrestlemania 19 in 2003.
Rating: ***1/2

Overall Thoughts: This ended up being a pretty damn good show with 4 matches being *** or more and one match (Del Rio/Show) that was on the cusp of reaching that plateau. The real surprises on this show, at least match quality wise, was Cesaro/Miz being MUCH better than I expected and Punk/Dwayne II being the rare case of the sequel being better than the original. The only real lowlights were the two filler matches but they were both short and really didn’t harm anything or anybody. I highly recommend this show.


Tl;dr review
Del Rio/Show- **3/4
Cesaro/Miz- ***
Elimination Chamber- ***1/2
SHIELD/Cena and Friends- ****
Ziggler/Kingston- *3/4
Kaitlyn/Tamina- 1/4*
DWAYNE/Punk II- ***1/2
Overall Verdict- p. good

Yeah, no doubt. If I hadn't known that was what had caused Shawns injury then I wouldn't even have noticed it. It's just whenever I watch the match now it sticks out to me like a sore thumb. It's the same whenever I watch the WM14 main event and see how in pain he is through out it.

Del Rio - Swagger is literally the only feud I care about right now until Punk/BROCK are actually doing something, and it it's just BROCK/GAME then I won't really care much about that build up either. Those immigration promos are fucking AWESOME and since I can't stand Del Rio I'm all on Team Swagger to win the WHC and send the internet into a fucking frenzy.

Fuck Retardo too. His face schtick sucks just like that dull mother fucker Del Rio.

AHHH I see you despised Punk-Rock even more than I did. I'm pretty sure by this point that I'm deducting ratings from these matches due to my anger that Punk is wrestling such a horrible opponent and that I expect better matches from him.

BUT IT'S NOT HIS FAULT DAMN IT .

Terrible match. Rock can't work. It's getting to the point of being some of the worst string of matches I've seen. Punk tries so hard to carry him, but damn. He's the biggest load of dead weight out there.
